ecran internet Description
ecran internet is an application suite that comes bundled with a web browser, text editor, image viewer, audio and video player, and file manager. It does not require installation.
Since there is no setup pack involved, you can drop the program files to any part of the hard disk and just click the executable to run, as well as save ecran internet to a USB flash disk or other removable storage unit, in order to run it on any PC effortlessly, provided that it has .NET Framework installed. What’s more, the tool does not modify Windows registry settings or create additional files on the HDD without your consent.
The main window provides direct access to all of ecran internet’s components, and preserves the same, minimalistic look for all of them. The upper part of the screen lets you input URLs and directory paths to access, as well as open and save documents, among others.
Web browser options
The web browser offers support for multiple tabs and instances, back and forward buttons for navigating previous and following pages, along with a search button for quickly looking up something on Google and other search engines.
A download manager is also available, but it does not automatically detect links, so you have to paste the respective URL in it. Quick links are provided for some popular social networking websites, email services and others.
The file manager supports multiple tabs as well, in addition to back and forward buttons. Otherwise, it does not have features than stand out (compared to Windows Explorer). The text editor lets you save files to TXT format, change font settings and color, as well as undo and redo actions.
Multi-tab support is also featured for the photo viewer and media player. It is possible to rotate images and change their position in the window, pause media playback, adjust the volume level, seek a position in the stream by moving a slider, as well as jump forward or backward several frames.
CPU and RAM consumption was normally used in our tests. ecran internet did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. The web browser is fast. Too bad it is not explicit concerning the file types supported by the image viewer and media player. Thanks to overall simplicity, ecran internet can be handled by all types of users.
